The 2013 Great Lakes passenger season gets under way on or about March 28 when the first ship of the season, the m.v. Irma, leaves Amsterdam’s North Sea port of IJmuiden to cross the Atlantic for that wonderfully scenic voyage via the Gulf and River St Lawrence and through the St Lawrences Seaway and Welland Canal for Cleveland, Ohio, then by way of the Detroit River and Lakes Huron and Michigan TO final destination Burns Harbor, Indiana.
Space is available in double and single cabins at a fare of $1,560 per person to Cleveland (about 13 days) and $1,790 per person to Burns Harbor, near Chicago (about 17 days), plus port taxes of $120 per person. An Owners Cabin is also available at a fare of $1,675 to Cleveland and $2,260 to Burns Harbor.
Passengers who are not US or Canadian citizens require a full US visa (an ESTA visa waiver form is not sufficient as cargo ships are not included in this scheme). A medical certificate is required for passengers age 65 and over, maximum age 79. For further details please click here.
This service offers two sailings a month during the St Lawrence Seaway navigation season (March through November departures) and bookings are welcome from travel agents.
